[[Final Fantasy XV items#Gold Needle|Gold Needle]] cures [[Final Fantasy XV statuses#Stone|Stone]] status from a party member. It can be bought from [[Final Fantasy XV shops|shops]] and found in outpost areas. Stone wears off quickly and makes one invulnerable for its duration, and thus players can simply wait out the status rather than use items to cure it. The [[Melusine (Final Fantasy XV)|Melusine]] battle is on a timer, however, and thus a stock of Gold Needles can come handy for that battle.
